Closely related to the Blueberry, Bilberries are slated to be the next 'new' super fruit as they contain greater concentrations of antioxidants and phytochemicals; but Bilberries are nothing new and in some parts of the UK have naturalised into hedgerows and scrubland where they go under a multitude of names including Whortleberries, Whinberries, Blaeberries and, in France, Myrtilles.

Growing up to around 18" (45 cm) in height, the Bilberry produces delicate white bell flowers that form into the familiar purple coloured berries in the Autumn.

The berries can be used fresh or dried and make the most wonderful pies, puddings and jam - which was a favourite with RAF bomber crew as they thought it improved their night vision.
